HOFSTRA UNIVERSITY Asian Studies Major AN 8-SEMESTER STUDY GRID (with distribution courses)  

    

This example shows how an incoming first year student might complete an Asian Studies major in 8 semesters. If you declare your major later, have advanced credit or competency in a foreign language, or are a Transfer Student, your grid will look considerably different. The Asian Studies major is interdisciplinary: students will take classes that count for their major from a number of departments. The major also requires that students complete a minor in a second discipline. Many of our Asian Studies majors minor (or double major) in Chinese or Japanese or in history, but we have had students with minors in many different areas. Your choices may vary. Many of the Asian Studies courses required for the major will also count as a distribution requirement, and some fulfill more than one requirement, such as Cross Cultural or Interdisciplinary Studies. Up to 6 credits of Core Distribution credits may be taken during Study Abroad. Students are required to meet with an academic advisor at least once a semester. Whenever possible, we encourage students in the Asian Studies program to participate in a study abroad program for a summer, semester, or year. Students may go abroad as early as summer after their first year, though most students commonly do so in their sophomore or junior year Requirements for the major: The BA major in Asian Studies consists of the successful completion of 30 semester hours. Four of these courses will be in 4 different disciplines; the next five courses will be selected under advisement to best complement your interests; all students must have a minor in an academic discipline; and all students will take the Asian Studies seminar, typically their second semester senior-year. The bulletin lists classes which count in the different categories, but note that other courses may count for the major if they have substantial Asian Studies content. https://bulletin.hofstra.edu/preview_program.php? catoid=91&poid=13327&hl=Asian+Studies&returnto=search

FIRST YEAR The grid below assumes you are combining your Asian Studies major with a minor in Japanese. There are many different combinations; while all Asian Studies majors need an academic minor, it doesn’t have to be Japanese. Most of our majors actually complete a double major in Asian Studies and another discipline, Courses required for the major are in bold type. Fall

What can I do with a degree in Asian Studies? Many things! An undergraduate degree program in Asian Studies provides many important skills to launch a successful career path, especially since the structure of our degree requires students complete a minor in a second disciplinary area. This degree helps prepare graduates for careers requiring familiarity with multicultural perspectives. Graduates work in many fields, such as education, journalism, business, law and diplomacy, and travel and tourism. Graduates may become teachers and scholars, journalists, lawyers, librarians, literary or film critics, consultants, public relations specialists, and translators. https://www.hofstra.edu/academics/colleges/hclas/cll/cll-career-potential.html

NOTES * Asian Studies majors are not required to take Summer or January courses (for which there is no financial aid). You can readily complete your degree in four years if you begin studying languages your first year or have advanced placement in one or more language areas. However, we encourage students in Asian Studies to study abroad if that is an option for them. ** While a minor is required for the major, we encourage students to double major in Asian Studies and another area. ***We encourage students to study abroad when possible. In addition to going on study abroad for either semester in their third year, students can go for the entire academic year in their third year, for a semester in their second or fourth years, or for a short-term program in the summer or during the January break. For Asian Studies majors, study abroad is especially helpful in obtaining a high degree of cultural competence.
